    great airplane except ground handling

    Yup, managed to land and stop the TBM easily in Q94 with a slow landing speed. ... but then I crashed when over-torquing on takeoff :-( ! Grrrr.

    Dry motoring after hot start

    Yes there's also a separate "Main Generator" item. Anyway, a starter generator should have a lifetime of many thousands of *hours*. This is a clear case of abusive programmed obsolescence. Time for a class action !

    Dry motoring after hot start

    Accelerated wear model is off ? It does seem to be inaccurate or at least strange. Fyi, I have 227 mins on the starter (without accelerated wear model enabled ) with a 13h airframe and I'm pretty sure I didn't run it for nearly 4h (!) either.
  4. Hi Gregg, I haven't tried the 3rd, so I don't know about that. Anyway, if shortly before POKKR you do the 1st or 2nd, then (before you deviate too much from the GS) switch the CDI to NAV1, and select "APR" mode on the Auto Pilot, it flies the plane correctly down the ILS26L approach you have chosen. If you do not switch to NAV1, you will get some guidance, but need to fly down the GS yourself.

    X-Aviation TBM-900 Improvements desired

    Aaah OK, thanks ! I understand now. From the normal inside cockpit view you need to use arrow keys, "," & "." to go outside and click on one of the tags. I'll continue to use the maintenance manager then, it's a bit faster !
  6. Hi Gregg, thanks for that explanation! I gave it a try with the TBM. Of course you do always need to activate the approach at some point. That's a normal step you generally do not take too early just in case there are last minute changes (ATC, etc). Because of those left turns, I did it just before POKKR, and despite the sharp turn the TBM turned to PRINO and followed the approach. Then the glideslope became active so normally you don't need vnav mode any more. But I couldn't get the AP to use the GP and flew down by hand too . That may be because the arrival is plain RNAV and the approach is ILS/LOC so I needed to switch over. I'm not sure, and I need to do a few more tries. I'm still learning, so this may not make sense. I also need to figure out how to update my X-Plane/TBM nav database. My approaches, arrivals and runways aren't up to date at all (SUNST3, ILS25L) although they're close. BTW that runway is endless !

    X-Aviation TBM-900 Improvements desired

    Hi Goran, I didn't know that, I always do it through the maintenance manager. I tried the walkaround now, and touching doesn't do anything... I'm sure I don't have the right touch ?
  8. A question on top of yours, Gregg: do you know for sure that the real G1000 does it automatically in all cases ? Also, do you mean "Direct To, Activate the Approach or vector..." or "Direct To, or Activate the Approach, or vector..." ? Just asking because I sometimes experience the sequencing stopping and I haven't been able to figure out why yet . Looking through the docs and videos hasn't provided an answer yet.

    [closed] 1.1.7 PFD OBS function is lost

    I definitely still see OBS in 1.1.7. Maybe the mode you were in at this time does not allow OBS ?

    Update issue

    > Settings and change Reflection Detail from minimal to low, Ghislain found it. Same for me, and minimal fixes the problem on my "original" installation too.

    Update issue

    I expected you would ask me to remove all plugins ... OK, I did it, only Gizmo and TBM left, unfortunately no change. I can live without the AoA thingy. But 1.1.7 definitely broke it, this didn't happen before. Log.txt (yes Goran, the yellow circle is added by the video recorder)

    Update issue

    Yes, no change with 419.35 driver for me either. OpenGL Vendor : NVIDIA Corporation OpenGL Render : GeForce GTX 1060/PCIe/SSE2 OpenGL Version : 4.6.0 NVIDIA 419.35 (460/0) With power on this time, side/menu bars flash in sync with AoA device. Outside is OK : 41935 117flashing.mp4

    Update issue

    Here is a video, hope it works... I'm on W10, GTX 1060. 117flashing.mp4 Log.txt

    Update issue

    1.1.7: This side/menu bar flashing phenomenon starts when AoA device is on/up and stops when it's is off/down (for me at least).
